Father's day card inspiration

Add Your Heading Text Here

Download the cut file from the design store and load it up into your design space. Now, this requires you to cut out the pieces from a 12×12″ sheets of card, however, I don’t have card pieces that size. So, if like me you need to cut out from A4 card, you need to resize the file. 

Before you ungroup the cut file, click on the corner and whilst holding the shift button, drag the box inwards to make the file smaller. 

You may find it easier to change the size of your media size in the page set up to A4 size. You can then position the largest element of the sheet to ensure it fits within the size. 

Cut out all the pieces out of the colour of card of your choosing. Make sure you cut the individual boat and lighthouse shapes out of the sheet of washi tape.

For the sentiment, I used the Hello Sunshine font to write ‘For you Dad’ and added a rounded rectangle around it. This font works amazingly well with sketch pens. I made two sizes as I was unsure which size would look best until I assembled the card.

When you come to ‘sketch’ your sentiment, make sure you have your action set to ‘sketch’ and your toolset to sketch pen unless you use the pen holder for a regular pen. 

In addition, make sure you only have the font set to sketch and not the shaped outline. If you have the Cameo 3 (I only have the 2), you can have it set up to cut your outline with your second tool.

Father's day card inspiration cut pieces:

Lori Whitlock has a great video on how to assemble her shadow box scene cards, which you can find here. 

Front card with decorative coloured elements – frame for the front panel, two side panels and inner background panel. 
 

A coloured pouch to attach to the back of the card along with an insert to write your message on. 

Envelope panel. 

In addition, you get two white panels which you fold to create mountain folds. See Lori Whitlock’s video as this explains and demonstrates this well – no point rehashing something when it’s already done!

 

There will also be two scene panels cut – one with the lighthouse and one with the boat. Removed you lighthouse cutout from the washi tape sheet, and position over the corresponding card panel. Repeat this for your boat. These should be done before you assemble the card. 

Remember, to check out the video here to assemble the card!
